As an academic head, Quah ensures that her students’ needs are her top priority and insists on delivering high-quality programme in order to develop qualified professional educators. She gives this advice to all of her students – Be a teacher that children remember you as being fun, loving and caring and that they remember the things you taught them when they grow old. Whatever you taught the children, it will not only influence them, it will also influence whoever that they will be influencing in the future.
